PHOENIX (AP) - Facebook said Friday it mistakenly removed a post in which Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer criticized a controversial policy decision by President Barack Obama's administration to limit deportations of illegal immigrants.

The Republican governor had said in a post Friday that Facebook censored the item she posted Thursday because it apparently violated Facebook's community standards.

Well Since they took it off by mistake , one would think they would replace it.

Since nothing that goes on the internet ever disappears completely , you would think they have a copy somewhere and they could repost it.

And so it continues. Big Brother and Hussein have scrubbed articles to hide Hussein’s past and now it’s censoring social networks. Just another in a long and growing list of why not to use FB.

Well, now that they can’t claim she used an illustration that she had no right to, they had to put it back! I suspect they use this one to pull a lot of things and that people don’t know how to defend themselves against this lame standard set by F/B.

They’ll try anything to protect the Oblamey One.

Bingo. That was might first thought also. They need to put it back up if it was just a “mistake”.

Facebook's community standards.

When they say 'community', they mean it...in the "commune" sense. "Ve all tink alike here on ze Vacebook, or you vill leave. Hail Obama!"

Looks like? They are. Zuckerberg is one of the biggest obama jock-sniffers, aside from the Google founders.

The idiot that runs Facebook is as dumb as they come!!! Oh, yes, he may be rich and famous, but.....trying to cover up for failed POTUS Obama is not a successful way to go through life!!! Facebook can scrub and spin for Obama all they want and it will not help Obama one iota!!!

Now what was not widely known becomes widely known - BHO to limit deportations of illegal immigrants. That’s the lemonade.

No, it’s a good reason to use the tools of the left against them. We have a local group using FB to post Agenda 21 articles. They may not like it, but they haven’t stopped it so far.

The Leftists operating within any organization often disregard the rights of those with whom they disagree regardless of corporate policy.

If FB is in fact unjustly censoring, then another social site focused on neutrality should emerge.

Google has some type of social “Circles” site, but Google isn’t exactly the prime example of neutrality.

Make that 401. I refuse to have a facebook or twitter account. I see absolutely no point to it. The wife keeps bugging me to sign up, but it’s not gonna happen. Unlike failing at being the last man in America without a cell phone, I know I can hold out on facebook.

This was all over the local AZ news last night, believe it or not. They even interviewed the Governor. They also questioned several college kids on the street, probably thinking they would be critical of Gov Brewer, but surprisingly, every one of them said that FB had no right to remove the post from her page.

I actually might have signed up for FB a couple of years ago, but an acquaintance was telling me about all the family drama going on FB with his connections. Then people not even related, but connected friends of friends, jumping in the mix to give their 0.02

Don't need the drama.

But in any case, you can't totally escape it. We were at the beach earlier this summer and a relative, unbeknownst to us, put up pics of our kids in the water. Friends of friends--who we barely know---now knew we were a few states away and that there was at least 1 house in the neighborhood unoccupied.

The funny thing is, when Socialists (and moslems) censor things, the censorship gets so much publicity that EVERYBODY sees the story + gets the message anyway.

Similar to this was the “forced removal of billboards” regarding islam and Omoslem’s communist tendencies.

Here is the post and photo FB removed.

Governor Jan Brewer

After I posted the following statement and photo yesterday, Facebook censored the post and removed it because the photo apparently violated their "Facebook Community Standards." Before it was removed, it had received over 10,000 likes and comments.

Regardless, I'm reposting the photo and statement. I think many of you will agree with me - - Obama's backdoor amnesty plan violates American standards of following the rule of law and the US Constitution.

Please click "like" and share with your friends.

-------------------------------------

The Obama administration cannot get its amnesty schemes through Congress, so now it has resorted to implementing its plans via executive fiat. There’s simply no other description for today’s announcement that the federal government will not pursue the deportation of individuals who are in the country illegally but meet certain criteria.

This plan amounts to backdoor amnesty for hundreds of thousands – if not millions – of illegal aliens. Especially disturbing is that it comes in the wake of the Obama administration sanctioning the sale of weapons to Mexican drug cartels – even as border states such as Arizona come under threat from those same illicit organizations. With this announcement, the President is encouraging more illegal immigration at the exact moment we need federal focus on border security.

Just last month in speaking to the National Council of La Raza, President Obama rejected the idea of bypassing Congress and imposing immigration reform. He said, "Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own. And believe me, right now dealing with Congress, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting … But that's not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That's not how our Constitution is written."

President Obama got it right last month and got it really wrong today.

Over the next 15 months, I’m certain we’ll hear a lot of talk from the Obama administration about its concern for border security. Those of us who truly care about the rule of law will remember the President’s actions of today. We need to remind President Obama that we elected a president that serves beneath the law and did not anoint a king that is above the law.

Facebook is so over-rated and unnecessary. People get completely inveigled by the latest toy, and FB is one of them.

I'm on a quest for low-tech living of late. You can't eat bytes of information, but you can eat the produce from your own garden and the products of your livestock. That will be a million times more valuable than the bilge people are lapping up nowadays in the very near future. It will be why the Left eventually perishes.

Right. Ironically, I just stumbled upon the article linked below about how Facebook REFUSES to remove a FB page "dedicated" to harming Sarah Palin.

Snip (link to article below...) Yet despite hundreds of people flagging the page as inappropriate, and despite pages set up specifically to protest the “kill Palin” page, Facebook has refused to remove it.

Facebook Refuses to Remove Page Calling for Sarah Palin's Assassination

That evil FB page is still up today even though it is in direct violation of Facebook's policy. And FB removes Governor Brewer's post for "violating" their policies? Unbelievable!
